My understanding is that fresh fruit is best, followed by frozen and then dried. However, mixing fruit into a smoothie is not recommended because it forces them to ingest the fiber which they would normally spit out.
Gliders can be picky when it comes to fruits and veggies. They also go through stages of liking one thing but then wanting a change. In my case, my little one used to love blueberries. Now she won't touch them. Like you, apples seem to be a consistent favorite. The best idea is to give them a variety and hope they will find something they like.
I'm not familiar with The Pet Glider Fresh Diet and if it's something you leave in their cage all day. But one thing that has helped me is to offer them fruits and veggies at night without any other food in their cage. That way their focus is on just fruits and veggies.
